Design systems and pattern libraries help designers and developers to get a common understanding of user interfaces. But even with such tools in place, there's a ton of processes and handovers involved. Each one causing possible friction and information loss. Especially over time. This might lead to new features feeling outdated on release, and screens and mock-ups getting too old too fast.
With our recent move to Angular and Sketch, we were able to automate 70% of our UI development. Helping our developers to focus on the real problems, and reducing the UI review efforts tremendously. Join us and see how we produce a single source of truth for developers and designers, and how we are able to consume this source in our tool of choice.
